  1. Moto G5 Plus

    Just wanna say this has been one of the best purchasing decisions I've ever made. Equal or better specs than my broken 5X for the most part at literally half the cost, and I'm confident it won't self-brick in the middle of an all night high school parking pass registration stakeout. ( @ my dead 5X) The camera does suck. I can get decent shots out of it in pro mode but that requires adjusting a bunch of little sliders and it's a pain when you just want a photo. Pretty much the only drawback. (Unless you rely heavily on NFC. Don't buy this phone if you need NFC.) Battery life is phenomenal. I can go 2 days. It charges as fast or faster than my 5X with quickcharge. No noticeable speed difference from the 5X. And I use the flashlight wave gesture all the time. Very convenient.

    So I leave for a few weeks because AP calculus runs my schedule now, and... this happened? Huh. It looks pretty good. I'll get used to it.

    My G5+ got here early. I can access the radio menus from the dialer and from signalcheck (and they're persistent in the recent apps list!) but there's no mention of CA or a SCC anywhere so I'd assume this thing isn't capable of aggregation.

I put the imei visible in the external photos into swappa's checker and they say it's a g5 plus unlocked varient.) I don't see anything about CA but it's late and I don't have time to look through the documents. Maybe tomorrow.
  5. Nexus 5X User Thread (LG H790)

    And it started looping again. Oh well.
  6. Nexus 5X User Thread (LG H790)

    Wow. Performance is pretty much normal after I applied the kernel fix. This has been quite an emotional rollercoaster.
  7. Nexus 5X User Thread (LG H790)

    https://www.xda-developers.com/nexus-5x-bootloop-fix-boot-phone/ This fix worked for me but the device is now unusably slow. At least I get to back up my text messages :/
  8. Nexus 5X User Thread (LG H790)

    My replacement bootlooped. Anyone got any advice?
  9. All of the sales reps would have to learn how to handle all parts of the bundle (home cable, etc) and Sprint has no in-house experience with consumer-facing landline ISP services. It would be doable and the industry might be heading in that direction, but it would be new territory for Sprint corporate.
  10. I'd think so. Level 3 would probably make the most sense (no consumer-facing business for Sprint to worry about; all that fiber could probably be integrated into Sprint's enterprise solutions with relative ease) but yeah either of those would be cheaper than Charter. I feel like Charter would only make sense if Sprint wanted to offer bundles, but that just seems like it would be too much headache.
  11. So the entire setup is confined to the weird white thing on top plus the power meter? Stealthy.
  12. Trying to get through it. Looks like the law allows any ROW small cell to go through expedited permitting as long as it's at or below 50' AGL. (It's actually 60' because the telecom equipment can extend up to 10 feet above the physical pole.) This means the city can't impose any permit requirements on top of what they already require of other utilities and the permits are actually approved by default if the city doesn't issue a denial after 45 days. There's also a weird limit on batch permitting. The mass-permit batches can't contain more than 25 sites. So I guess as long as Mobilitie can dial their 70' poles down to 50', we're all good. Also looks like cities can't require permits for same-size equipment upgrades down the line either.
  13. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Moto/Samsung Clear (ALU/Nokia NV) market here. AFAIK nearly all of our non-redundant phase 2B sites were de-comm'd. I can only think of 2 off the top of my head that haven't been out of maybe a couple dozen I used to keep track of. YMMV of course.
  14. Nexus 5X User Thread (LG H790)

    Well I just popped open my 5X to transplant the motherboard into a new housing and it turns out that LG didn't screw my midframe back into place when they were repairing the bootloop thing. 10 empty screw holes. :/
  15. Just found another GMO>Full build conversion today myself. With mini macros. Very exciting considering word on GMOs this time last year was "they might be replaced sometime in the far future if someone stumbles upon enough cash to fund it but they aren't part of any current plan".
